WHAT THEY ARE
A shop heater is meant to heat up a workshop or smaller workplace. There are a few different kinds of heaters to consider. Some are electric, while others use fuel like propane or kerosene. Each have their own sets of advantages and disadvantages depending on the space it needs to heat.
Shop heaters are necessary because cold temperatures can really put a damper on work. The freezing cold can make workers uncomfortable which will in turn hurt productivity. Cold weather can also make you sluggish and sleepy. Heating up your shop can help you avoid these issues and keep your workplace humming along. As your Vancouver, WA shop heater provider, we look forward to assisting you.
HOW THEY WORK
Each type of heater works a little differently. Electric heaters often have a temperature control option and a way to control the fan. This can help you distribute heat throughout the shop to where it's needed the most. Heaters that run on propane generally don't have issues heating up an entire shop. In this kind of heater, an open flame encased inside of a durable metal body is usually the source of heat. Kerosene heaters can also heat up an entire room. You can adjust a temperature gauge to make your shop as comfortable as possible.
Most shop heaters take up a small space on your floor, but hanging heaters are also an option. These heaters hang from the ceiling and usually don't have as far of a range as the previously mentioned heating options. Hanging one of these up will require some precautions. You'll definitely want to keep it away from any potential fire hazards in your shop.
On that note, all types of shop heaters need to be operated safely. No matter what kind of power source it uses, always make sure that you're using the proper one for that particular heater. Never leave one of these heaters near items that could catch fire or be damaged by heat.
You should also never leave any heater unattended. Make sure that you have enough ventilation in your shop and ensure that your heater is in good shape before you start using it. A propane heater could have cracks or other damage that make it dangerous to operate. An electric shop heater that hasn't been properly cleaned could also present a hazard. Make sure that its coils are free of dust and other contaminants.
The products we sell are effective and dependable, but safe operation always needs to be a priority. No matter what your heating needs are, we can help you find a solution that suits your needs.
